I cannot believe it’s time for Pancake Day already!
On February 9th it’ll officially be an amazing day dedicated to eating what can be considered one of the world’s favourite breakfast foods. For me it’s a tie between pancakes and oatmeal when it comes to sweet breakfasts – I feel like both have a special place in my heart and picking a favourite would be like picking a favourite child. Can’t be done.
So, for this ultra special day, I’ve made a recipe that is wheat free and incredibly easy to make. We soak the flours overnight to make them easier to digest, but if you can’t be bothered / forget, then just go ahead and add the water or even almond milk when you make them.
I usually make them without the coconut sugar, as I feel the berry compote and chocolate chips are enough, but if you’re after a sweeter batter, then go ahead and include it.
Place your buckwheat and rye flour and cover with 1 cup water and the lemon juice. Stir and leave on the kitchen counter, covered, overnight.
In the morning, give the pancake batter a stir, add in the beaten egg, baking soda, coconut sugar, if using, cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate chips, and sea salt.
Heat a a little bit of coconut oil on griddle or skillet. Pour about ½ ladle of batter per pancake onto your skillet. Once bubbles start appearing on the top and the batter no longer sticks to the pan, flip and cook on the other side for a further minute. Note - the skillet should always be hot when cooking pancakes!
Serve pancakes hot with desired toppings.
*simply mix 1 tablespoon chia seeds with 3 tablespoons water, stir and place in the fridge for 10 minutes to form a gel.
Leftovers can be enjoyed cold the next three days or can be frozen, just re-heat in a toaster or oven.
